As every bride knows getting married is the most wonderful, exciting, moment of their lives. That was this day in Tawney town, MD. I was doing a wedding in this beautiful castle that reminded me of the movie the princess bride. When I arrived to the site there was stairs that wrapped around and around and kept going and going. There was no elevator of course so with my heavy luggage I went up and I said to myself "well that's my workout for the day"
I went in this most amazing room that was huge with mirrors that would never end, wood floors, a king size bed with the most amazing headboard. I was in love!!
The bride and bridesmaids looked great and had a blast getting their hair and makeup done.
When I was done doing the hair and makeup the girls put there bridesmaids dresses on and they all were dressed like it was the movie the princess bride with reef's on their head lol I loved it.
As I packed up and started walking down!! The stairs lol the bride was behind me and as we were walking down someone said out loud "where is the groom" I turned around looked at the bride and said to myself " I’m going to move out of her way before she hurts someone lol she went crazy!! Well as ten min went by she heard a horse running up to the castle and there he was on a horse with his Zorro outfit on and a sword in midair saying "I am here my love will you marry me" I was going to die!!! I thought I had seen it all!!!

It was a beautiful early morning getting ready to go see my bride. I was driving to a historical wedding in Virginia. When I arrived everyone was there to get there hair and makeup done about 4 bridesmaids, mother of the groom and mother of the bride and of course my beautiful bride. When I was about finished I was setting up my tools for just the touch ups and the bride came up to me and said "Since we have a little bit of time why don't you get something to eat and relax" I said "Sure, thank you". I looked at her and said "Are you feeling ok"? She replied "Yeah I just have an upset stomach I think it's nerves". Mind you, she is in the dress. She told me that she was going to just sit for a min. While she sat down she looked at me and said "I feel like I’m getting cramps"!!! I told her "Sit up!! Sit up!!" Yup, it happens ladies!!! She had her period!!! Luckily it was such a small spot that bled through the dress, but no fear Lisa is here with tide bleach white out pen from my emergency kit!!!! It got it right out and poof gone!!!  We all could breathe. She took some Midol and was back to normal. I felt bad for the groom as well lol!!!

Hello to all my brides!!!! I would like to stop by and tell you some of my adventures as a hairstylist and makeup artist and give you some great tips for the big day so you are prepared!!

As a hairstylist and makeup artist i think i have seen it all.
 I remember when i first started working for a company doing hair and makeup about 6 years ago and they sent me to Virgina. This was in the summer time. Of course this is when GPS wasn't even around. We only had map quest or a map lol, so I followed the directions and it took me down this dirt path road that just kept going and going. On my right I see an old man on his rocking chair at his home that looked so old and dirty. He was holding an axe!! I thought to myself "Am I passing the chainsaw massacre’s  home"?
 I was getting really scared and have you know, that this is in the morning with the sun out lol :)
I kept going and going. About 8 miles now,  on my left I see a huge field with big rolls of hay but no horses!! I said ohhh god please let me live, this wasn't in the contract. Finally I see a huge house that was like a mansion. I looked at the contract and it was the house I’m supposed to be at. I pulled up this long long drive way and parked my car. I got my stuff out and walked up to the front door where I rang the doorbell and a lady answered the door and I said "Hello I am the hair and makeup artist Lisa". As she was talking to me there behind her was a huge deer head on the wall, a dead bear as a rug and more and more weird stuff. I thought to myself wow these people don't play, what are they mafia lol well turns out that they were!!!!! When I found that out I just prayed and prayed that I was doing a good job. Once that was over I called my boss and gave her hell!!  I told her she better give me a bonus!!! And she did but she was laughing at me for about a good 15 min lol  she never knew that the people were in the mafia.
